Madison: Reps. Jessie Rodriguez, Amy Loudenbeck and Cindi Duchow released the following statement after hearing from Rep. Robert Brooks and learning about his decision to step down as Assistant Majority Leader in order to focus on his district.
“Rep. Brooks’ comments were out of line in July and we made our views immediately known to him and the Assembly Chief Clerk. We were satisfied with the Assembly response this summer and have fully accepted Rep. Brooks’ apology.
“While we respect his decision to resign his leadership position and appreciate the seriousness with which he takes the issue, it is beyond what we expected or even wanted. We have put the incident behind us; we would ask kindly ask others to do the same.”
